What a whirlwind the weekend has been! On Friday night I had the pleasure of dinner and conversation with Harold Brown. Yesterday, my daughter and I headed out to Veggie Fest 2012, a fund raisng event for for CARE, an organization dedicated to promoting compassionate living through education and activism.
We got to hang out with Harold Brown again, I met up with my dear friend Andrea and her family, and of coures we ate a ton of yummy vegan food! Burgers, kebobs, baked beans, potato salad. I had some pie and ice cream, too!
The weather was just perfect, we explored the park a bit:
We visited various organizations tables, including Friends of Animals:
I won a raffle prize!
And, I got to hang out with my new bud Lydia of From A to Vegan.
It was a great way to spend an afternoon benefitting a great organization! If you would like more information or to donate to CARE please click this link.
Stay tuned- tomorrow I will fill you in on the rest of my Saturday which was spent at the second annual Piggy Palooa, a benefit for the Pig Placement Network.
I love that there is so much opportunity for local activism, even close to my suburban abode! Both events were within an hour of my house which goes to show you really don't have to live in the big city- there are opportunities everywhere if you just look around a little!
